A Date

Derek's brother's family has been begging us for a full day with Rowan for a while now so we took her to their house yesterday and then left for the longest date ever! We saw the matinee Sherlock Holmes and then went shopping and had dinner. It was the bomb.

Rowan & Santa

Rowan took a picture with Santa for the first time ever today and it was sooo precious.

In the Studio

Last night I met up with a bandmate, mostly to figure out where and how to start things up again, but it was basically band practice. For just a couple of hours I felt like Veronica Daylight again, and it felt really good.

In the AM

The last couple of mornings around here have been filled with music, wrapping presents, coffee, yummy breakfast, reading and of course adventures with Rowan.

Coloring Book

Last week at dinner, the waiter brought Rowan crayons and a paper to color on.. we thought she would just try to eat the crayons and rip the paper but once we showed her what do to she started coloring away! Well, mostly just making random marks all over the paper but you know what I mean. This got me thinking about making her her first coloring book for Christmas, but to make it special, I photoshopped pictures of our family to look like a coloring book, designed/printed out the cover and then Derek used grommets to bind the book.
We already had a giant box of crayons but I just took out the basic colors and put them in a little bag with an "R" sticker that I had leftover from her birthday party.
I know it will be a while before she's coloring inside the lines, but in the meantime she can practice with this and I can make her an updated book, with updated photos, any time I like... and for free!

Rowan listened to almost 4 whole songs in a row this morning before ever once pulling the headphones off. She really loves the Phoenix Pandora station, just like her mama.
